She is a complex person, both outspoken and sensitive, highly sexual and most definitely anti-establishment. Is she the first ever feminist?
Simmons has been mashing up horror, sci-fi, hard boiled crime novels, thrillers, and historical fiction while often stuffing his books with so many ideas that it was all I could do to keep up so this seemed like it could be a bit more than I could comfortably chew.
Just as I feared, while I was reading and nearing the end, Simmons crept into my house like a ninja and rammed a funnel into my skull. Then he poured his wild sci-fi ideas and concepts into my brain pan like a frat boy pouring the suds in a beer bong. My mind overloaded, and I gibbered like a monkey on meth for fifteen seconds before passing out.
Keep reading and one of these days, I will END you! Simmons borrows the structure of The Canterbury Tales here.
A powerful religion has grown around the Shrike and many make pilgrimages to try and see him from which almost no one ever returns. A former Consul of Hyperion is contacted by the Hegemony government and told that he must join a pilgrimage to see the Shrike with six others.
The Consul meets the other pilgrims which include a priest, a soldier, a poet, a scholar, a detective and the captain of a rare giant tree capable of space travel.
Yes, a giant tree moving through space. Realizing that they must have been chosen to make the journey for a reason, they take turns telling the stories of their connections to Hyperion and the Shrike as they make their way towards the Time Tombs.
By using the different story tellers, Simmons gives different perspectives for tales as diverse as an interstellar war to a future detective story with big sci-fi action to quieter personal tragedies like a father losing his daughter to a horrible fate.
All of these stories eventually come back around to Hyperion and the Shrike. I was also impressed how Simmons writing this in foresaw a computer network linking people, but also turning them into information overloaded cyber junkies who confuse accumulating news with taking action.
Oh, and memo to George Lucas: Or just hire Simmons to write the damn thing for you. My only gripe is that while I knew there were sequels to this, I thought I was getting a complete story, and it definitely leaves a lot hanging for the next book.represented in Geoffrey Chaucer‟s Canterbury Tales where most of the tales engage with gender relations and reflect the characters‟ perspectives towards the opposite sex.
